Why I’ve never “liked” a damned thing

by allthoughtswork

Seriously, folks, an ubernerd friend introduced me to an app that tracks cookies and other naughty little intrusions into each page of my online experience and it found Facebook following me around like a gahdammed rabid puppy.

PS: I hear Pinterest is just as bad.
